Descriptions for classes that may need further explanation:
NEW classes added in May:
Ranch Classes - Formerly known as Ranch Horse Pleasure. The purpose of the ranch classes is to show a working horse's versatility, attitude, and movement. The primary considerations are the horse's quality of movement and overall manners and responsiveness while performing the required maneuvers. The class should allow the horse to show its ability to work at a forward working speed while under the control of the rider. A horse being shown with light contact should be rewarded. Ranch Riding class judges the rider and Ranch Horse classes judge the horse. No silver. No bling. No fancy clothes.
Showmanship- Class is judged on the handler’s ability to present the horse to the judge. The horse is not judged in this class except as it pertains to its responses to the handler.
Horsemanship- Class is judged on the rider including the correctness of their seat, hands, legs and the ability of the rider to communicate clearly with their horse.
GAP- "Go As You Please", choose two favorite gaits. With a trotting English horse you could do walk and canter, with a western horse you could do walk and lope, and with a gaited horse you could do walk and another favorite gait (anything but a canter).
Gaited Equitation - to be judged on the rider’s position, control, and use of aids at the walk and pleasure gait. Riders may be asked to perform something specific upon judge’s request, such as backing.
Gaited Trail Pleasure - horse shall not be required nor expected to maintain qualities such as a high head or high front leg lift, but must be extremely willing, well-mannered, responsive, relaxed and quiet. The horse must be manageable on a light rein at all gaits, and should show evidence of being collected and balanced in his gaits. To be shown at the flat walk and the pleasure gait.
